4 Leather Jackets To Get You Ready For Spring/Summer

Posted: 7th March 2016 in

The chill of winter is not quite over yet (we’re still putting the heating on in the mornings currently) but spring will soon be upon us, and shortly thereafter, summer.

Leather is a breathable fabric, meaning it can be surprisingly cool in summer, as well as warm in the winter. It’s actually the sheepskin lining in most of our winter jackets that give you that toasty feeling, whilst the leather creates a more durable and great-looking finishing touch.

So, if you want to keep the great style of a leather jacket throughout the warmer months but shudder (or rather, swelter) at the thought of wearing a thick coat in the sun, then these are the jackets for you.

Rik: Men’s Leather Jacket

The “Rik” jacket is made from high-quality lamb nappa leather and is one of our lighter jackets for men. With a wide variety of colours to choose from and a simple yet attractive design, this jacket can go well with any outfit. The collar can be worn open (as pictured), or buttoned up for warmth if you encounter a strong wind on your travels, and the straight fit is designed with comfort in mind. You might not even realise you’re wearing it!

Bella: Ladies’ Leather Jacket

Simultaneously smart and casual, the “Bella” jacket is a chameleon of sorts. It can be worn with almost anything, from a t-shirt and jeans to a skirt and pixie boots. The soft, lightweight cowhide leather of this jacket makes it breathable and comfortable. Once again, this is a jacket that retains warmth during summer but stays cool in the winter. The fitted design and knitted collar provide comfort and functionality.

Zoe: Ladies’ Biker Jacket

The collar has sculpture wire, meaning you can create a range of interesting and unique looks, wearing the jacket open or closed to get the desired effect.
